According to the Github changelog, version 0.25.0 of mpv no longer compiles with libdvdnav support by default . Preferably the packaging would use the --enable-dvdnav flag during build() to continue DVD playback support, however if the packagers decide to not enable this functionality libdvdnav should be removed from the dependencies. I believe that trying to run "mpv dvd://"; will result in a segfault currently (this may be fixed upstream).

Additional info:
* version 1:0.25.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
Compile mpv with default settings and attempt to play "dvd://".
This task depends upon

With how mpv is currently configured and built, trying to play back a DVD (even with no disk or even drive present) results in a segfault. This is due to not being in the 0.25 release.

I'd very much appreciate for proper DVD support to return to arch's mpv packages.
